Walking around the picturesque citadel is a must do. It's tight streets and high terracotta walls make this place rather special. The views out to the sea are spectacular, we managed to catch glimpses of Sardinia in the distance. Also the vista of the cliffs is a great photo opportunity. Visit the restored church in the middle, beautiful.

Enjoyed the citadel very much. There are incredible views from the citadel of the sea and the shoreline. Loved that there was a cemetery nearby. Definitely a must visit for the history buffs.

The Bonifacio Citadel is worth spending a couple of hours walking through it. If you couple the visit with lunch, there are lots of restaurants to choose from.

Park in the main car park near the marina in Bonifacio, then walk around to see the boats en route for this very impressive Citadel. It was extremely hot (37 degrees) the day of our visit and there were a lot of tourists around, but we enjoyed the visit.

Very nice little town above a beautiful cliff! There are plenty of restaurants and lots of tourists around. But the walk around was very pleasant. There are some lovely views of the sea and the port!!!

The old town or the landscape! I dont really know whats best! Togheter are just stuning! The port, the citadelle, if you see it from the sea, or by foot is just amaizing.

We've been returning regularly for years and it still fascinates each time. It can be crowded during the busy summer season but there are plenty of eateries in the upper or lower parts of the town. Spectacular views of the cliffs from the balconies. Best to park near the port and walk up the steep hill to the citadelle. The... More

Make sure to park in one of the lower car parks and approach up the hill- go to the very top for a great view before entering We spent half a day exploring before heading to the beach Well worth the visit

Didn't like too much. Too crowded, too touristic, hard to get a parking place for your car (signs saying 'green' until you arrive there). Coast line is a must-see, I admit, but I would rather go to other places in Corsica (e.g. North of Ajaccio).
